Banana Walnut Bread
3-4 large ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup softened butter, partially starting to liquefy. I used a very low setting on the microwave to start to melt the butter. Heat at short 20 second intervals to make sure you don't melt the whole thing.
1/3 cup of sour cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 cups of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas, softened butter, sour cream and eggs at a low speed until combined. Add vanilla and mix just to combine.
In a separate medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and chopped walnuts until they are well combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the moist ingredients mixing at a low speed until just combined. Do not over mix.
Prepare a loaf pan with cooking spray or by greasing with butter or margarine and lightly flouring the loaf pan.
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, removing when the loaf is brown, firm and cooked through. Get your coffee pot or teapot going, cut and enjoy! Moist,crunchy, flavourful and not too sweet.
